Perfect little home base tucked away downtown in Hilo with bright light and ocean breeze. This room has a double bed and is great for an individual or couple. Located just 5-10 minutes walk or drive from the airport, groceries, banks, pharmacy, restaurants, beaches, waterfalls, and more.
Gardens surround the house making it feel like a secret urban garden oasis. Great spot for east Hawaii exploration, or islandwide adventures. Simple and clean little crash pad.

Michael is a very nice host and the house is in a good location close to Hilo downtown. Second floor apartments are enjoyably spacey.
